Alright. It’s 2014, and that means resolutions. The residuals from partying like it’s 2013 are officially gone. Vacation’s over. It’s Monday. It’s time to get serious. (I hope that was somewhat motivating, if not, try reading again with the Rocky Theme Song playing in the background. It works, right?)
It’s time to take 100 Days of Real Food’s 10-Day Real Food Pledge, along with us here at Little Green Pouch. By doing so, you’ll start of your 2014 with a commitment to Real Food, and real health. 100Days of Real Food predicts that, upon completing your 10 days, you’ll notice improved health, “such as having more energy, losing weight, improving regularity, or just feeling healthier overall.” After the 10 days are over, you can continue with your life however you’d like, but with knowledge as to how and why you should avoid processed foods.
We hope you do this with us! Don’t forget to sign up for the 10-Day Pledge with 100 Days of Real Food, and review the Real Food Rules while you’re there. Also, be sure to "Like Us" on Facebook where we will be checking in with you on how your 10 days are shaping up along with giving away a 4-pack of Little Green Pouches and an accessory of your choice each day when you engage in our daily Real Food Pledge posts.
Finally, start cooking some real food. If you need inspiration for recipe ideas don’t forget to check out our Real Food Pinterest Board and Real Food Recipes hub. And 100 Days’ Real Food Tips is another wonderful resource.
On our end, we’ve made a few real food plans to get started. Here is Melissa's Plan for 7 month old daughter, Parker. And Maggie's plan for, her, her two boys (3.5 and 5) and her husband. You can download a blank meal planner HERE.
We’ll make sure to let you know how it’s going here on our blog and on Facebook. And please do the same. We’d love to hear from you on Facebook, in our inbox (email@example.com), on Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, or carrier pigeon. Let us know you are taking the plunge, we mean pledge, with us. Let's do this!
On a parting note, we’ll leave you with some motivation from the king of all motivators, Rocky Balboa. It is a little bit over the top, and not entirely appropriate for the situation, but we couldn’t resist.
“Going in one more round when you don’t think you can – that’s what makes all the difference in your life.”
“I guess what I’m trying to say is, if I can change, and you can change, everybody can change.”
(Rocky IV (curse you Ivan Drago!)) We’re looking forward to getting healthy with you (and hanging out) these next 10 days.

We’re now in week two of our 100 Days of Real Food initiative. We hope you’re on board! The time is nigh to provide a little inspiration (and motivation?) by letting you know where to find great Real Food Pouch Recipes.
First, we’ll go ahead and toot our own horn, and point you to our Real Food Pouch Recipes page, which is a fantastic resource for tasty (and easy) Real Food recipes. There you’ll find Real Food Pouch Recipes like Roasted Apple and Parsnip Puree (with an awesome instructional video), Baked Quinoa e Fagioli with Veggies, Homemade Yogurt (in a Crockpot!), Spiced Up Yams and Broccoli and Carrot and Nectarine Smoothie. These and other Real Food Pouch Recipes are tagged as Real Food, for your convenience, and stamped with our handy Real Food Badge.
Next (horn toot number two), on our new Real Food Pinterest Board you can find a great collection of Real Food Pouch Recipes that meet our Real Food (and tasty) standards. Make sure to follow along. (We apologize in advance if you spend two hours in the “Pinterest Time Suck” after taking a peek at our new board (Melissa is probably there as we speak.))
Finally, we are excited to share a fantastic new Real Food Pouch Recipe from Lauren Kelly, CN (awesome recipe developer, cookbook author, food blogger and nutritionist). Lauren’s put together a Real Food Pouch Recipe that she says “is so easy to prepare, there is no excuse not to make it.” Lauren’s Unsweetened Pear Applesauce in the Slow Cooker is so good that there’s “no turning back after you try this.”
We’ll check in with you next week to see how all is progressing on the Real Food front, and give you a few Real Food Pouch Recipes for the holidays (we can’t believe they are here so soon!).
